Scope and content

There are three different sections of film footage on this reel.

The first is of two men and a young boy going fishing from a river bank, gutting and cleaning the fish they catch and baiting their hooks with mill eggs. There is more filming of three other men going down the river in a small boat and then banking it to fish. They gut and clean their fish as-well. They load their small boat into the back of a red pick-up truck after they are finished their day.

The second part of this film reel begins with a map of Tweedsmuir Provincial Park. Men on snowmobiles traveling to an abandoned log home and acreage. They then break through the ice on the nearby lake and begin to retrieve their previously set beaver trap, which has a caught beaver. The men then travel to a different location and set up a beaver trap. There is some additional footage of two moose in the snow as the men travel to a third location and retrieve another caught beaver from under the ice. The men return to their cabin and skin the beavers.

The third part of this film is footage of Anahim Lake village, birds in the area, wild flowers, cattle drive, children fishing on the river and swimming, a pelican on a lake, and people in a boat traveling.

Possible other locations of filming include Bella Coola River, Dean River, Ulkatcho, Ulkatcho Mountains, and Tweedsmuir Provincial park.
